What a WEEK!

I feel as if I need to appologize for not updating the blog sooner...but once I show you the pictures, I hope you will understand!  It has been CRAZY around here this week!  (a good crazy that is!)

First off~ lets start with these three amazing cards that Ann Weyer brought in!  These are the 3 that she will be doing in her cards class on April 13th.  Everyone that has seem them has just Ohh'ed and Ahh'ed over them!  So, be sure to call in and sign up for that one!


Now, back to the crazyness.......this is pretty much what everyday has started out like!

Box after Box- just full of fun new stuff to put out!  Don't get me wrong... I LOVE the new stuff, but I feel like these things have been multiplying!  We get one checked in and put out and there are two more in its place! 

Here are a few of the lines that we have found homes for....and it has been tough!  We have even had some of our customers in this week trying to help us find room!  :)

Praire Hill from Pink Paisley
<-- This line we got in for Bug Club this month, but there is still a little left that went out on the store sales floor!   I love how it is subtle, yet bright...if that is possible??  I also like that it is very gender neutral!
New Echo Park!!!  We also got in Birthday, Music and Dance from them too! 
I cannot wait to take one of these home and organize
all of my dies!!  They are a very high quality, sturdy binder that locks, so you don't have to worry about them falling out!

SWOON from MYLB  It's about time someone did
a good wedding line! 

Simple Stories~  Mix and Match 6x8 Albums
This are a step up from the "SMASH" books, since they give you a little more flexability...LOVE THAT! 

Can you say FLOWERS!!!  WOW!  We wanted to revamp our "basics" section of flowers...and I think this about covers it! 
Here are a few of the other ones that we got in from Petaloo.  The colors are so delicate and the textures on them wonderful!  I was so excited to see the butterflies too!  It have been hard to find good ones!

Now, since I could not take a picture of everything new- here is a quick rundown of a few other things!

*We R- Baby line- the embellies FINALLY got here!
*New BottleCap Co. Stuff
*LOTS of new Darice Embossing Folders!  These are always HOT!
*New HoneyComb Papers....YES-the rainbow one is here too!
*Military Embellies
*Elizibeth Craft Glitters and new Class a Peel Stickers
*Vinyl- 12x24 sheets in NEW colors!


AND..........Here is a list of other stuff that still needs to go out!

TOLD YOU!  What a week!  If you are going to be at the Terre Haute Crop for the Cure...we will see you Saturday!  We start loading up the van tomorrow to make the trip up!

The new LUCKY 8 Punches are HERE!!

 On Friday- we got in about 15 boxes....that were filled with the new Lucky 8 Punches from We R Memory Keepers! We have been waiting for our since July of 2010...yes, 2010- that is NOT a typo! So, you can imagine how excited we were to get them in and bust them out! We opened one and have it here for you to try! We used it all day at the Crop for the Cure in Evansville...and LOVED IT! It is SO easy to use! Just 8 punches and you are done! It takes probably a minute or less to punch all the way around the entire page!! Now that is something that I could NEVER do with my Martha Sterart "Punch Around the Page" punch sets!


Here is a link to a video clip that showes how to use them...and how easy it is!  It is animated, but it really is that EASY!!!

For the Die Cut loves out there...check out a few of the new LifeStyle Crafts (aka QuicKutz) dies we just got in!  They are an AWESOME value! 

And finally- here is one of the finished cards for the HoneyPop Class that I will be teaching next Friday!

Enjoy the Weekend!  Melanie and I are off to the Crop for the Cure in Evansville tomorrow- which means that today will be spent loading up my van!

Look what we have been working on!!!

WOW- we have been so busy checking in and displaying new stuff, that I have not had a chance to even post or send out an email about it!  WHEW!  Here is a quick little run down on what is new! 

Can you say "We {heart} us some BO-BUNNY! " We have all of their new Spring lines in!  I am not sure which is my personal favorie but Ambrosia seems to be selling the best so far!

Next up is Simple Stories.  This is the line that makes the papers that fit the We R Memory Keepers divided protectors.  These papers are great for making those "Easy Peasy" Albums, because they have done all of the work for you!  Of course, my favorite is the "AWESOME" line- since it has great boy colors, but I am going to have to fine a reason to use the "FABULOUS" line....LOVE IT! 

They also did their own take on the ever popular "SMASH" books, and those should be shipping in the nest week, so be on the lookout for those! 
Other things in this week that just haven't made it out yet...but are SO close....

My Minds Eye- We did a little from most of their new lines
We R Memory Keepers- New BABY line!!!  (Great colors!)
Graduaion Papers and Stickers
